becoming a teacher

Amirisu currently offers two online courses for those who want to work in knitting.
Both are sets of video and PDF resumes. Tokuko is talking like a classroom.
It's been eight years since I started teaching, and every year I feel strongly that thinking about how to run the classroom well is more important than acquiring knitting skills.
Japanese people tend to be technologically advanced, but teaching is a business. If you don't understand that, it's just a hobby.
I also made a lot of mistakes, and each time I desperately thought about it and tried again. I wish I could tell you my trial and error so far.
I hope it will be useful for those who want to make knitting a job instead of a hobby.
